Antique 1825 Anthony Imbert Lithograph Print NYC NYFD Hook & Ladder Co Parade

This listing is for a rare antique Anthony Imbert Lithograph. It shows a scene from the 1825 Grand Canal Celebration parade in New York City in 1825. The parade was to celebrate the opening of the Erie Canal. This particular lithograph shows a hook & ladder company. There is an American flag atop the ladders along with a banner printed with their motto "We Raze To Save". Based on our research, the artist for this piece was Dominico Canova (1800-1868). The lithograph measures 8 1/2" x 14 1/2" inches including the wooden frame. It is in good overall condition with foxing and creases. The bottom left reads 'Litho Prefs of Imbert & Co New York'. There is the Roman numeral XXII in the upper right. Please see the photos below and contact us with any questions. Don't miss your chance to add this rare piece to your collection!

There is a piece of paper taped to the back that reads:
